Legendary Texas coach Darrell Royal dies

By David Ubben

A Texas legend has died.

From our news story:
AUSTIN, Texas -- Darrell K Royal, the former Texas football coach known as much for his folksy, simplistic approach to life as for his creative wishbone offenses and two outright national championships, has died. He was 88.

University of Texas spokesman Nick Voinis on Wednesday confirmed Royal's death. Royal had suffered from Alzheimer's disease and recently fell at an assisted living center where he was receiving care.

Royal will certainly be missed in the world of college football and in the Texas community.
